Kitchen Details : Colorful Retro Appliances

Kitchen mint greenThere is no escaping Pantone’s colors of the year, and I’m not saying it because I’m over them, on the contrary, I can’t get enough of them, especially Rose Quartz! It’s quickly become one of my favorite colors, as well as just about everyone else’s. It’s the prettiest light and airy shade for fashion, exudes romance incorporated into weddings, and works with just about any style in the home. And I mean any style, whether feminine and girly, or ultra modern, Rose Quartz brings a fun, yet soft freshness into any home. The easiest way to incorporate Pantone’s colors may be a new coat of paint, throw pillows, or even an accent table, but what about incorporating color into your kitchen appliances!

Okay, appliances in bright colors may not be for everyone, but have you checked out Big Chill‘s awesome retro collection! Personally, I’ve had my eye on this beautiful oven with brushed brass accents for awhile, but you’d be surprised how you can easily work their fun colorful pieces into a kitchen. And although I’m a stickler for mostly whites in a home and stainless steel appliances, I thought it would be a fun challenge to style a kitchen showcasing Big Chill’s pink lemonade retro stove. You have to check out all their stoves!

The inspiration was this rustic farmhouse kitchen filled with mint green. I love the different colors, finishes and textures that all work so well with the bright appliances. Big Chill PostBig Chill Style BoardI love the pink lemonade stove and fridge and envisioned it in a bohemian rustic kitchen. I know farmhouse and boho don’t often go together, but when I was pulling pieces I liked, it all seemed to worked just perfectly together. To offset the bright colors…statement ceiling wooden beams, stark white cabinets with butcher block countertops and gold handles, an island with the reverse look of white quartz countertops, and wood base stained the same as the floors, and industrial stools and light fixtures. You can’t have a bohemian space without prints, and this pink Portuguese tile makes for the perfect backsplash. I mean it’s just beautiful isn’t it? The final boho touches; an Aztec inspired rug, hanging plants, and macrame window hanging.

I could honestly picture this kitchen if I had my own gal pad, where I could call all the rose quartz and pretty bohemian shots I wanted…How would you use these pantone inspired colored Big Chill stoves?!
